    I am going to be raising some quail. Is there anything I need to know about cooking them or eating them? Someone told me that people eat quail bones and all--is that true? (I know that in France they eat small birds that way--it's some kind of delicacy--but wouldn't coturnix be a bit big for that?) Anyway, I'm looking for some quail recipes in advance, just so that I can be prepared. LOL

    I cook them in thepressure cooker just a few minutes. Take them out and batter them and fry them quick until golden brown. Serve any side dish you like but we like them with grits and gravy.

    Quote:Before you batter them, how long do you let them cool down....all the way, or just enough to handle? Sounds yummy!

    Well I have a recipe somewhere for pomegranite quail with grilled polenta wedges that is spectacular. It may take you a bit of work to present it but let me tell you, you could serve this meal to a President...

    I'll get it together and post it, then come back here and update your thread with the link...


    Well this took some recollecting as my notes are packed somewhere in the attic. I sure prepared this often enough and it's worthy to serve to your best guests
